Dandelion And Burdock

Formed in 1956 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by ex Gospel singer Joe Cook, 'The Slop' was the first release by 'The Thrillers' that same year. Their big claim to success however came with the US Top 30 hit 'Peanuts' in 1957 on Okeh Records. No more hits followed and the group disbanded with Joe continuing to record on smaller Philly record labels. This track can be found on Disc 3 of the CD 'The Okeh Rhythm & Blues Story 1949-1957' released in 1993 on Epic Records.
